Welcome to the City Pulse/WLNS 

2012 Top of the Town Awards! 


This year we have seven categories and 106 subcategories. We encourage you to vote in all of them, but you may vote once in as many as you wish. When you do, you have the opportunity to be entered to win gift certificates to Save! Lansing, where you can save on local restaurants, retail shops and services. First prize is a $100 certificate, second a $50  certificate and the third, a $25  certificate. 

Here´s how the contest works: 

Fire up your computer, get online and go to www.lansingcitypulse.com.

The voting is separated into seven categories. Each time you vote, you can select one of the choices someone else has nominated or you can nominate your own. Don´t worry too much about spelling,  correct that daily. 

IMPORTANT: If the business you are nominating has more than one location, be sure to indicate as specifically as possible which location, such as "on Cedar" or "West Lansing." 

Have fun! And pick up City Pulse on March 21 to find 

out who won!
